attacked president bush mercilessly at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war which is nonsense and was very anti-his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> jon: first of all, bush was the worst president since herbert hoover. [cheers and applause] and second -- -- second, you (bleep) hated him. haaaated him. hated. and third blocking a secretary of defense nominee that has nothing to do with your current rediscovered moral outrage at american deaths overseas whilst copping to maybe a little payback is the antithesis of your campaign slogan so pardon me, sir, but perhaps it needs an update. [cheers and applause] we'll be rik.ck. [cheers and applause] >> jon: welcome back. as you know, america is like a boy band, yes. [ laughter ] that is the premises we are asserting. each of our 50 state has a distinct personality. we've got the cute one. [ laughter ] we've got the rebel, rides a harley with no helmet.

't working. he was ready to shop around in a way that herbert hoover, by temperament, could not have done... uh, and try one method or another. if the president had little time for keynes' mathematics, he showed interest in numbers that told how many americans were still without jobs. in the first four years, the roosevelt administration launched the nra, ccc, wpa-- a virtual alphabet soup of programs to relieve unemployment. newly employed workers spent more money, creating more jobs. by 1936, it appeared that the depression was ending. it was time for a balanced budget. central revenues are increasing. emergency expenditures are decreasing. a balanced budget is on the way. does that sound like bankruptcy to you? roosevelt won a landslide re-election, but the celebration was brief. he cut spending. in october 1937, the stock market took another dive. unemployment began to rise once again. suddenly it appeared that the past four years' progress would unravel. president roosevelt may have been an economic conservative, but he was a social liberal. he saw rising unemployment and responded b

bush mercilessly at one point said he was the west president since herbert hoover. said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war which is nonsense. and was very anti- his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> john: because for some in the g.o.p., there's nothing more wrong than being right. republicans will continue to punish hagel for the crime of being right. connoisseurs of paranoia likely won't forget another new outburst from the nra's wayne won't pea air. today, he accused president obama of launching "the most aggressive campaign in history to destroy second amendment rights." including -- >> bans on millions of commonly-owned rifles, shotguns and handguns. bans on tens of millions of standard magazines. bans on private transfers. even between family members. >> john: that came after lapierrre published an opinion piece on "the daily caller," the comedy site that doesn't realtize is a comedy site when he said gun owners need their weapons to protect their family from a total collapse of society. a collapse mr. lapierrre says he saw a response of in

do know about herbert hoover, he had a successful first half of his term passing bipartisan legislation for trade, the smoot holly bill. some suggest it was a major contributor to the economic slowdown. others suggest it's been vastly overstated. but it ultimately passing bipartisan legislation comes down to a president's ability to lead and to work with the congress. and hoover had been in washington, secretary of commerce for eight years before he became president and food administrator under president wilson beforehand. if you have bipartisan relationships on both sides of the aisle. very close with president truman and joe kennedy. relationships that spanned both sides of the aisle. presidents work their will. able to get bipartisan legislation through. and i -- i think you can look at hoover's history and extrapolate from that how he might view the current situation and polarization in washington. >> john taft, would your great grandfather could go along with that? the bipartisan style of previous presidents not happening? >> my great grandfather struggled in his relati
towards george w. bush, is really upset because chuck hagel compared w. with herbert hoover? you are republicans trying to subvert the foreign policy of the united states over an old and bitter grudge? let's bring in ari melber and democrat strategist julian ep sto epstein. what is senator mccain's problem? is he trying to defend a mode okur president bush or is he trying to defend a failed war in iraq? >> i think it's more iraq where we know senator mccain has long stood by our presence there and adding troops there, but bottom line if you take this as the mccain filibuster standard, then no one in any democratic administration ever gets a vote because, guess what? a lot of them have good faith and i think well-grounded disagreements with george w. bush. so this cannot be the standard. it's not defensible on its own terms and that's the problem. they are erecting a supermajority hurdle for all of this legislation and all of these nominees. this is an old problem from the way the republicans have been acting and it doesn't stand up because by this standard again you would not let

failures. finally, as obama being the great extricate towaror. we have a history to. herbert hoover was one, and for the first years of his presidency, fdr was one. >> thank you. [applause]rex aaron, why don't you respond to that, specifically the point that whatever the u.s. said that both bob and leon talked about, whatever the u.s. has been afraid of happening in syria is happening right now. continued deaths, increase friday july station -- increased radicalization. we should act to prevent hundred of thousands of deaths -- we are moving up to 100,000 deaths in the syria. as the president said in his recent argument, that the u.s. is not intervening because of interest or limitations. what about the moral imperative that the president acted on in libya? >> libya and syria provides fundamentally different examples. let's be clear. it is in the resume of the great power to behave. in hypocritical fashion. that is how great powers behave because they have the luxury of being able to be that way. in libya, the president acted because it was a different moment in the so-called arab spring. h
, whether it is richard nixon, ronald reagan, certainly herbert hoover, dwight eisenhower, jerry ford, and that is why george h w bush, another man who i like and admire enormously at the personal level -- an incredibly thoughtful man -- he reinforced the perception of the republicans as the party of the landed gentry. it became a problem in 1992. >> which campaign did you dislike the most? >> the 2012 campaign was a pretty bad campaign. >> because? >> i do not think either barack obama or mitt romney really likes politics that much. you have to have people who like politics. >> how can you not like politics and run for president? >> you will have to ask them or their doctors. i do not think either one of them get much joy out of it. >> do you still get joy out of it? >> i do. not as much. there was a time when you would stay up late at night and -- everybody would have a funny story -- i think there is less of that now, and last letting down of hair. there is a lot more control in the campaigns. a lot less accessibility. >> i remember, 40 years ago journalists like you would know the
was the worst president since herbert hoover and said the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which was nonsense. he was antihis own party and people. people don't forget that. you can disagree but if you're disagreeable, people don't forget that. finally, chuck hagel does not have the qualification in the view of many of us to everybody is. no managerial experience, his answers on iran were troubling.y what they're going to do by what they've done in the past and that record is nod good. at the same time the president won the election and he can select his nominees, but we have advice and consent. >> if you could stick around here if possible, we would appreciate it. more with nor mccain on this and the future -- the potential next secretary of defense. a better than 50/50 thing a little more than days ago, now in maybe serious doubt today. much more after this. today is gonna be an important day for us. you ready? we wanna be our brother's keeper. what's number two we wanna do? bring it up to 90 decatherms. how bout ya, joe? let's go ahead and bring it online. attention on
president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense, and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> you may not agree with what senator mccain said there, but that's basically what appears to be a grudge match, and that's why we said grudge match with a question mark. when you listen to senator mccain, is he wrong? do you agree with him? >> well, actually, i agree with senator mccain that chuck hagel is not the right guy. i also agree with the washington post who said around the first of the year mr. president, don't pick chuck hagel. he is not the right guy for d.o.d. he is well to the left of the policies of the obama administration during the first four years. so basically here's the problem. there has been a bipartisan mainstream support for national security, for our middle east policy dating back to 1978 with jimmy carter for israel, for our approach to iran, and chuck hagel has made a career out of being outside of that mainstream. engaging in hyperbole and all sorts of edgy statements. now
since herbert hoover, said the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war. which is nonsense. antihis own party, people don't forget that. is this hagel fight about policy or is it about a political payback? >> this is all about politics. when you listen to that quote from john mccain and you watch the way he and his colleagues conducted themselves, they look like an infomercial for anger management therapy. it was truly nothing more than a grudge match. we have almost 70,000 soldiers in combat in afghanistan representing us, fighting for our country and also protecting each other. we need to have a strong figure coordinating the pentagon. and the tactics that you see mccain and the republicans engaging in clearly undermine the next secretary of defense who they all acknowledge is going to be chuck hagel. the other issue, don, is politics in the context of political preservation. lindsey graham is posturing himself because he's afraid of a tea party challenge for renomination to the senate. john cornyn is afraid of being out-conservatived by his junior senator in texas. >> le
government has always had a big role, one that republicans have long embraced. in 1930, even as herbert hoover was trying to balance the federal budget, he urged large scale expenditures on infrastructure. despite all this, infrastructure spending is politically dead. president obama invited congressional republicans to a private screening of "lincoln" hoping that they would see compromise in action. of course, they refused. perhaps he should try to get them to watch the splendid new american experience documentary on the making of the panama canal. 100 years ago the united states completed what was then the most expensive, complex but ultimately successful government program in human history. it was a project where everything went wrong. the french had tried to build the canal a few years earlier and despite putting the builder of the suez canal on the job, they left in total failure. the first chief engineer quit after the first year. his replacement left, as well. only would the third did the project start moving. yellow fever killed thousands of workers, caused others to flee in fri
deficit. franklin roosevelt railed against that against herbert hoover, for example. if you look at the polling data, you also see there was a single exception of spending on international affairs. foreign aid, single exception, americans oppose every single thing that might reduce the deficit. and if any piece of spending and plurality and the majority of americans in this. the response to this crisis to blow up two levels of debt that we never imagined possible, that certainly did not do us any good. most controversially, and i'm sure the president of the united states does not agree with us, but in my view, it wasn't just that he focused on the laser beam of the economy. the economy was nowhere near as bad as the one barack obama inherited. he was doing so many things at once. he accomplished an incredible amount of stuff. but one result of that was it was very hard for the american electorate to see all of these things popping up. like with good health care reform have to do with getting people back to work. the answer is not anything really. it was a good thing to do in its
upgrade for the first time since 9/11. the massive herbert hoover building will become more secure and more visitor friendly than the barriers that are there right now. tom sherwood with a look at the plan that includes the white house visitor center. tom? >> wendy, tourism in the nation's capital is big business. but ugly security barriers don't help. little known national aquarium has been tucked away since 1932 in the huge basement of the commerce department building downtown. video screens, live exhibits delight visitors like this capital from boston. what do you think? >> it's great. >> ugly sidewalk secure barriers in place since 9/11, they were supposed to be temporary, still discourage foot traffic to the aconveyor numb and the white house visitors center. >> where now there have been planters sitting for a long time, the trees aren't terribly healthy. the sidewalk isn't in good shape. >> but the entire perimeter, one side isour football fields long, about got pedestrian friendly security that respects the historic building. >> really one of the first times for the federal
the herbert hoover commerce building are about to get a facelift. under a new design plan, the large security barriers in place since 9/11 will be replaced with more pedestrian-friendly barriers. the entrances both located in the commerce building will also be enhanced. planners hope this redesign will draw more foot traffic through that area. >>> some public safety funding may be in jeopardy. that's because prince george's county is facing a serious budget shortfall. in fact, the leaders there say no services will be safe from cuts this year. prince george's county bureau chief tracee wilkins has a look at what's at stake. >> this is going to be very difficult, and we need to prepare ourselves. there will be cuts. >> reporter: he delivered a reminder. >> unfortunately there will not be any departments that will be spared. >> baker will have to make an estimated $152 million in cuts to balance the county's $12.7 billion spending plan. while he's faced deficits before and avoided layoffs and furloughs, he says it won't be that easy this year. >> there's just no way, not enough income coming in
